Book Launch for Everybody in the Red Brick Building illustrated by Oge Mora
**New Date - October 23rd**
Come in for a special book launch story time on Saturday, October 23rd at 11:00 a.m. with one of our favorite children's book authors, Oge Mora, to hear her read her new picture book, Everybody in the Red Brick Building that is written by Anne Wynter.
An urban bedtime romp from debut author Anne Wynter and Caldecott Honoree Oge Mora.
A chain reaction of noises wakes several children (and a cat) living in an apartment building. But it’s late into the night, so despite the disturbances, one by one, the building’s inhabitants return to their beds—this time, with a new set of sounds to lull them to sleep.
This timeless bedtime picture book features diverse characters and a rhythm so perfect that it’ll prepare little readers for slumber themselves.
Oge Mora graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in illustration. Her debut picture book, Thank You, Omu!, was a Caldecott Honor Book, a New York Times Notable Book and Editors' Choice, and a Junior Library Guild selection. She is also the author-illustrator of Saturday, as well as the illustrator of The Oldest Student: How Mary Walker Learned to Read. Oge lives in Providence, RI, and invites you to visit her website at www.ogemora.com.
